Because flour spray from the wheat grinder can travel far and wide in a split second.
Oh NO! I’m so sorry! That’s one of those incidents that would cause me to haul in the shop vac and just start vacuuming everything!
lol! Fortunately I caught it before it got too bad, but I was still amazed at how much came out.
You have my sympathies. And emphathies – I once had to use a fire extinguisher in the kitchen. It was a nasty, extremely fine, foul-tasting powder that got everywhere. The powder was so fine you could taste it when you breathed. I left the house for half an hour just to let it settle, then another 1.5 hrs to clean the kitchen. Darn nick-nacks.
When I was making chocolate pudding as a teenager, I had never used a hand mixer before and my sister told me to turn it on before placing in the bowl. Lets just say pudding can fly. We were laughing so hard while cleaning pudding off the ceiling and in other adjoining rooms. I’m sure we missed some spots.
yea that isn’t fun…….
Ohh. No fun! I hope to inherit my mom’s old stone wheat grinder someday – in the distant future! It’s a whole different process – and not much chance of flour going everywhere. Unless you forget to put the pan under the grinder. Not that I have any experience with that or anything.
Could you please give a recap of what kind of wheat you buy, and what you use it for? I know that wheat berries can be bought in bulk, and I’d imagine that it is cheaper to grind your own flour than to buy it. Do you purchase flour to use specifically in desserts and some breads, and grind your own for other items? I know that there is some controversy over how many nutrients are lost in the processed flours purchased from the store. Lastly, what mill do you have? Thanks!
Actually, don’t you think that leaving the top off the blender ( as some kids do) while making a milk shake or smoothie tends to make a much more sorrowful cleanup??? Of course that would never happen to you!
My daughter once added a whole bunch of flour to the mixer at once, and turned it on high. So there was suddenly flour all over the place, including all over her! She looked at me with big eyes, as though I was going to get mad. But she looked so funny, covered with flour, that I just burst into laughter!
So that got me started telling her a bunch of stories of kitchen mishaps, and we were both in hysterics in very short order.
I got to thinking so much about our various kitchen mishaps, I finally just put them all down in writing. Kitchen Disasters.
Hahahahahaa! Sorry, but I just had to laugh WITH you! I hope you were laughing. :O
